CONNOR Oliver was today handed his full Hartlepool United debut by Colin Cooper.
The on-loan Sunderland midfielder took the place of the suspended Simon Walton, who missed the return to his former club after his red card against Morecambe on Monday.
The interesting decisions came further forward on the field.
Monday’s match-winner Jack Barmby came in for James Poole but there was no start for Jack Compton, who had to be content with a place on the bench.
Plymouth boss John Sheridan made five changes.
